Kaitlyn Bristowe Says There’s ‘A Ton Of Pressure’ To Show Off ‘Perfect Body’ on ‘The Bachelor’

Former “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe took to Instagram on Thursday to talk about what it’s really like to be a contestant on “The Bachelor” franchise.

“I don’t know if you noticed but it feels like if you go on ‘The Bachelor’,” Bristowe wrote, “your body has to be perfect and you have to post about it, like, a lot.”

Bristowe’s called her message a #realstagram, and featured a more natural looking photo of herself, apparently tired from a multi-stop trip.

“Edmonton > Vancouver > LA > Nashville > Toronto > Nashville > Mexico > Napa > Nashville all in 3 weeks. I’m tired, run down, I’ve been eating hotel and airport food, I’m puffy, sick, and I had the time of my life,” Bristowe said. “But while I was in Mexico, I thought to myself, if I am here and I don’t take a sexy professional pic in my bikini, did I even go to Mexico?”

Edmonton>Vancouver>LA>Nashville>Toronto>Nashville>Mexico>Napa>Nashville all in 3 weeks. I'm tired, run down, I've been eating hotel and airport food, I'm puffy, sick, and I had the time of my life. I even said out loud yesterday, "I am so lucky." But while I was in Mexico, I thought to myself, if I am here and I don't take a sexy professional pic in my bikini, did I even go to Mexico? I found myself doing the compare thing. I don't know if you noticed but it feels like if you go on the bachelor, your body has to be perfect and you have to post about it, like, a lot. Which is a ton of pressure. Yes. I'm tiny, but I have cellulite, and insecurities. I'm actually insecure about how scrawny my arms are. I work hard to be healthy, and love my body, but also drink wine and eat McDonalds. (Had it twice this week.) And I should have taken a sexy bikini photo. And I should have done it without filtering or editing it, with a bad angle, for a good #Realstagram photo. Because real is sexy too. So here's my real pic. I'm run down, tired, greasy, full of Mcdonalds, but I had one of the best 3 weeks of my life. Let's keep this movement going. I have a fun @rawbeautytalks project coming soon. #realstagram

The 32-year-old Canadian reality show star admits that though she knows she’s thin, she still has insecurities.

“Yes. I’m tiny, but I have cellulite, and insecurities,” she said. “I’m actually insecure about how scrawny my arms are. I work hard to be healthy, and love my body, but also drink wine and eat McDonald’s.”

She added that she’s had McDonald’s twice this week.

Bristowe ended by calling to keep the movement going, and teasing at upcoming “projects” with Raw Beauty Talks, a non-profit dedicated to “building positive body image and self love.”
